Michael Annett enters the final race in the Round of 12 for
the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs in eighth, 11 points
above the cutoff line.
• Annett’s best finish at Dover is third in 2012, and he’s
coming off a 10th-place run there earlier this season.
• The 1-mile oval at Dover is one of Annett’s best tracks, as
he has an average finish of 13.1 in 15 starts. The only track
better than Dover is New Hampshire, another 1-mile oval,
at 13.0.
• The next top-five or top-10 finish for Annett this season
will tie his career-best marks in each category, set in 2012.

“Getting back to Dover for the cutoff race to the Round of
8 was key for our No. 1 team. We have a cushion over the
cutoff, which is what we needed, and Dover is a good track
for us. We were 10th in the spring there and could have
had a few more positions at the end had we not restarted
on the bottom for the final restart. We’re going to Dover
with the idea of being fast, being smart and advancing to
the Round of 8, and our TMC Transportation Chevrolet
certainly has the speed to do all of that.”
